June swap recap

It was sold out. It was abundantly brimming with another very large array (OK, not really that Very Large Array, but I do always think of the New Mexico satellite complex when I hear that phrase) of eye and mouth candy. The June swap was not to be missed. Just in case, here it is in all its photographic glory.

Watermelon Aqua Frescas for the potluck

Quinoa Salad was a potluck theme this time

More potlucking

There are a couple things missing from our gallery (apologies!) as usual. They are the divine Chocolate Covered Caramels by J.K. and colorfully zesty Pickled Onions by Lea. Am I missing anyone else? As always, if you have photos from the swap, please send them to me or post them on our Facebook page.

Thanks to Vanessa once again for the majority of the photos. The rest of her shots can be seen here, and I have a set here. Also, check out Emily's awesome blog post telling the story of all her trades.

Look forward to doing it all again in August. Tentative date for the next swap is Sunday, August 5th  we'll confirm and announce as soon as we can.
